I grew up in a small town of about 2,000 people just outside of Columbia, MO. My objective as a child was to be adventurous and try to mimic everything my older brother did. Not surprisingly, I grew up a tomboy and fell in love with every sport I played. Sports, along with solid academics, led me to college where I was on the golf team for a couple of years before transferring schools to pursue a specific type of degree: computer forensics. I graduated with honors from Missouri Southern State University in May of 2013, but soon after graduating realized I was not interested the positions that my major made available to me. I found a basic entry-level position in Columbia where I worked for just under a year when I then decided that I needed to go back to school, and this time I was going to pick an area I knew I liked: design. See, I had always loved web design, but I wanted to brush up on my skills and expand my knowledge base. I started school in August to pursue an Associate's in graphic design at Moberly Area Community College. Come October, I had landed my first part-time graphic design job. After finals were over in December, I decided that working was benefitting me more than going to school and I decided to switch to full-time. After getting engaged in early 2015, I decided to take a job where my soon-to-be husband lived as a Marketing Director for a small theatre. We married in November of 2015 and I have continued working for the theatre. I also began my own business, Sly Fox Shirts.
